A line-up with a collective record of 1-42 this calendar year. Inner Circle could be popular dropping down two grades, though he's no certainty to uphold Redcar form with Etikaal as that one continues to improve on turf. Munthany may get this run to suit and is also respected, but perhaps a slightly more adventurous suggestion is BLACK SALT, ever more competitively weighted and surely with more to offer at 7f or beyond than he's been able to show on either start at the trip so far, including last month's seasonal return.

On a losing run of fifteen but perfectly consistent granted 7f-1m on a galloping track; ought to find this a touch easier than the Redcar 0-90 in which he crafted a still-decent third last time, beaten over 1l (Etikaal 2l behind), and among likeliest here; cheekpieces return.

Didn't reproduce the form of last July's winning Beverley debut (5f, good to firm) on any subsequent 2017 outing, and has similarly already taken a backwards step since this term's good return effort; out of a winner at 7f, so have to hope return to this trip and debuted hood effect a revival.

Whilst a 1l second at Hamilton last time was her best effort of 2018 so far it was also recorded over an 8.5f trip closer to her present optimum, and an outpaced last of eight in an identical C&D event to today's in May doesn't augur well despite a mark 10lb lower now than then.

Gradually getting back to where he was form-wise for Simon Crisford over a year ago, and the RPR of 76 for last week's Musselburgh third (7f, good to firm; beaten under 2l) is actually his best ever on turf; turn could be nearing, and did win the last time he contested a class 5 race.

Two places and nearly 1l ahead of Black Salt at Doncaster last time, albeit with a significant race-fitness advantage and without obviously taking to the now-discarded blinkers; losing run stands at 23 and proving hard to name the day, despite a mark now 19lb below his last winning one.

Looks as if a strongly run race around a galloping 7f represents his current optimum judged on last month's Wetherby success off 4lb lower (good to firm), and the outpaced effort at Thirsk which has followed it; likely still on a workable mark and may well get this run to suit; possibilities.

Best form effort of last season was recorded second time out in victory at Redcar (6f, good; RPR 73), so reasonable to expect his recent modest Doncaster return run can be built on, especially dropped another 2lb; should have more to offer over 7f-plus this term, and may be worth chancing.

Dual turf winner over 1m-8.5f (including good to firm) last year off 2lb higher, on both instances coming from off the pace; this shorter trip looked too sharp when last tried a year ago and his occasional propensity to start slowly might just make a tough task impossible if repeated here.

Dual scorer at this sort of trip in Ireland during spring 2017, but hasn't had the soft ground of either of those successes this term since what appeared to be a much-needed seasonal return; best kept to one side for win purposes until the rain returns, despite a further 2lb drop.

Signed off for Henry De Bromhead in April 2017 with a 7.5f Tipperary maiden win (soft) but has shown comparable form only once in five subsequent outings; early fractiousness sealed his fate on last month's return, and have to hope he responds the right way to the debuted hood.
